is massachusetts senator, john kerry. if somehow susan rice is disqualified from becoming secretary of state and president obama then picks john kerry instead, guess what happens in the united states senate? massachusetts suddenly has an open u.s. senate seat as well as a certain republican senator from that state who is basically just sitting around doing nothing since he just lost his re-election effort. i know this sounds crazy. i'm fully aware of that fact. that's kind of part of the point. honestly, it is getting harder and harder to find a rational explanation forle all of this republican hand ringing. it has been been going on. there are legitimate questions to ask about what happened during that attack on our consulate in libya. those questions deserve answers. they are being investigated. there also may be legitimate questions to ask about susan rice as a potential secretary of state. that's not what's going on. there is this add dimension to what's going on right now that is really strange. >> i just believe that she has actually disqualified herself to be secretary of state. if th

now to debate the issue are the news editor at townhall.com, and former aide to senator john kerry is with us. katy, i'm generally extremely supportive of law enforcement. i want them successful in their job to keep our streets safe, and offense n offense no i havee everybody's text and e-mails for two years, that will help them. if we save and record everybody's phone conversations, that will help a lot. if we video tape everybody 24 hours a day, that's going to help, but where does the line get drawn? >> exactly. where does the line get drawn? this is equivalent to putting a gps in everyone's car and seeing where they go for two years, to make everyone wear a recording device and record conversations for two years. i'm also very supportive of local law enforcement and law enforcement in general. essentially what they're doing is asking for everyone in the country to be turned into suspects before they have any evidence that they've committed a crime. in my book, that's a bit of a government overreach and opening the door right for more tierney into people's personal and private l

rice in her statement, she voiced support for john kerry as an alternative. listen to what she said. >> i think john kerry would be an excellent appointment and easily confirmed by his colleagues. >> interesting. how much self-interest is at play here? if kerry were to get that job, republicans could pick up his senate seat, right? >> that is correct. remember, scott brown picked up the kennedy seat in massachusetts and he lost it to elizabeth warren in the last election. so there is that scenario that if john kerry were to get that post, then that opens it up again for scott brown to pick up that seat. a couple of things. first of all, it's widely known out there that john kerry wants the job. but, of course, you know, the story we've all been talking about that susan rice appears to be above on that list. that's the first thing. all of this speculation about who could get that job and, you know, if he got that job then this person could pick up the seat in massachusetts, it really is all just sort of hypothetical here. the president has not put forward a nomination yet. there's a

, and awful these senators have come out and also said that they thought that senator john kerry would sale through the nomination process. now some have speculated that that's because republicans want a chance at that massachusetts senate seat. the bottom line is that the rice nomination could be a bumpy ride, whether the white house wants to have that ride at this moment in the middle of the fiscal cliff, in the middle of everything else, i think is a calculation that they are in the process of going through. martha: it's interesting. we are sort of watching the formation of the second-term cabinet, and you see the goodbye that has come to petraeus and gates and others and you watch how this thing is coming together. we'll see this john kerry and susan rice are too on that team and perhaps hagel as well. we'll let you go and see you tonight on special report. bill: is the president sending a signal on flexibility when it comes to tax rates, or is he holding firm? remember this? >> i also believed everybody should have a fair shot, and everybody should do their their fair share and play by

on a sunday show to get the secretary of state job. she says she would much prefer senator john kerry for that job. because, yeah, he's never been a politician. or presumably, she's still okay with the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's not like she's ever run for anything. you know, obviously she's never been on a sunday show. if she had been on a sunday show, she'd ever gone on a sunday show, that obviously would have disqualified her from becoming secretary of state. that would show her to be behaving in a political fashion. everybody knows the secretary of state cannot do anything political. seriously? there is a mismatch between the seriousness of the things that we actually need to get done as a nation and the quality of the system in washington that is the means by which we must get those things done. syria is not our war, and syria is not going to be our war. but there are tens of thousands of people dead there already. and the regime there appears to have just turned off the lights, pulled the plug, disconnected that country entirely from the eyes of the world.
